behind me is the new LG 34 um 95 21 by 9 super wide Thunderbolt Display it could have been perfect except it's flawed so let's start with the basics this is a 34 inch screen at a 21 by 9 cinema aspect ratio which is great at watching movies and it's also great at doing any kind of work or if you just like to have multiple windows open because the textured width that you get with this screen is absolutely amazing the screen resolution is at 3540 by 1440 for something like that how did I pop it on the screen anyway it's a very high resolution but not quite 4k but it's definitely high resolution compared to the standard 27-inch screen resolutions at 2560 by 1440 that we tend to get these days so the extra resolution is definitely good because well wall resolution is better isn't it but unfortunately it is not retina or 4k the other plus point it is a thunderbolt display which is great because it will work with the new MacBook Pro Retina early the new ones the latest ones for some reason maybe it's because the high resolutions I'm not too sure as Apple and it will also work with the new Mac Pro their trashcan once but as you can see it is running on my MacBook Pro 15 inch retina and it's running at fine at native resolution connected through the fundable port it does have two HDMI and one DisplayPort as well as the aforementioned Thunderbolt Display port with a daisy chain out so you can connect multiple display or other accessories through the monitor it also has three USB ports and back but unfortunately only one of them is at Rachael a USB 3 the other two is a USB 2.0 for some strange reasons but here's the crazy little thing if you're connecting the display through the Thunderbolt the USB ports actually work as a hub and it connects it through the Thunderbolt cable so you don't need to have a separate USB cable go into the screen which I only just found out after reading the manual screen quality great it reminds me of my previously sold in my 27 days so if you have an iMac polo if you just go into the Apple store and look at the screen it's kind of like that but with a matte anti-glare film on it it's not too matte as in making it look fuzzy with some Dell screens or some other anti cooling coatings so the screen quality itself is actually amazing the color is very bright and vibrant and vivid and resolution is great as I mentioned before it is an IPS panel and it's factory calibrated on all the rest so I've got nothing negative to say about the screen quality itself so that's definitely a plus point the base is actually good again or recovery from the iMac it does remind me of the iMac base is made of metal with a clear see-through back bit but it's only made of plastic so mmm could've been better girls make them class but maybe it easily be a bit flexible so in case you know I'd okay whatever reason was made of plastic move it up we have the black glass bezel down BOM but the rest of the screen is actually very thin around the edges which is great because again it doesn't look like there's a massive thick black board around the edge so again it makes the display look good just standing there next we have the joystick which at the bottom which you can use to navigate the menu system and the menu is very clear and easy to navigate which is kind of self-explanatory and it's nice and clear and it looks sleek again nothing to bolt it so easy to use now on to the other little details well obviously the screen is a 21 by 9 ratio and it's actually quite a high resolution or a unusual resolution at 3540 by 1440 for resolution somewhere there about but obviously you need a powerful Windows PC or the latest MacBook Pros and Mac Pro and computers to run it as much before and if you think about if you want to run games on it obviously you need a mega gaming rig to run it because it's almost when hear 4k resolution but I had a brief go at it with running port on my Mac on is a little bit jerky obviously I would get the best frame rate but it's just what playable and the experience of playing game at that kind of widescreen it's actually really immersive and good I was quite surprised I'm not a regular gamer but it definitely made that feel quite cool an immersive like playing with such wide screen so again the screen is started really good for playing games obviously it's not as fast as a new dedicated gaming screen but you can get these days but you get the plus point of it being super wide eye very immersive which gives a very cool gaming experience that I've found although it has two HDMI inputs you can use it to plug in a Playstation 3 or any other gaming consoles in it but the trouble is because it is a 21 by 9 ratios and all the constants are designed to be run on a 16 by 9 all you get is massive black borders around the top bottom left and right and if you do decide to use one of the menu settings to zoom in a bit or you will end up cropping the top and bottom so it's not really ideal ratio for playing console game so it's best bet is to use a PC to play games on it to get the most out of the screen otherwise it's just going to wait all the black borders around the edges and might as well use a standard 16 by a nice green so all the noil I absolutely love the screen I mean the colors are great like I said before and it's great for watching movies it's great for a win it's great for doing work on it with the high resolution air wide screen you can have three browsers open with still some room spell on the side for whatever you want so basically this screen is very good for everything it even has a picture by picture mode so you can have one side of the screen running a game or a TV and the other side you still use it as a computer screen with adequate amount of space it's absolutely amazing instead of having dual monitors which I hate because I like the bezel right in the middle anyway as I said right at the beginning with a video there is a major flaw with the screen only by the second day or third day second day or something when I was working at an acquire environment without no music play in the background I noticed on the side of the screen it was making a clicking a ticking noise if you go on web and do a quick search on the web for LG clicking ticking monitor display you will find that there's many reports of it saying that it could be a capacitor or a transformer or something to do with the power supply that it has the issue which is a damn annoying problem which means the screen is faulty is either palsy on this design always got damaged through transit or is just ate too badly design so which means it has to go but here's the problem I don't know why I should get a replacement not because this screen is 860 pounds 860 pounds when I bought it it is very expensive especially now that you get a 4k 27-inch screen for about five six hundred pounds not the best screen in the world in terms of image quality we're still getting 4k screens and lots of other options or you can do triple monitor set of dual monitor setup so 24 27 days and still have some money spare but this one thing I wanted to say at 860 pounds which is mega expensive although I did find it completely justifiable in the first few days but like I said as soon as there's this quality issue which I am very worried that the next one that get will have the same one I don't know if I should buy another one what do you think what do you think I should do anyway the first step I really need to do is to pack this bloody thing up and send it back because it's that faulty and I need to get rid of it quickly and then I shall decide if I will get another monitor or not 4k dual screen I don't know hi everybody did you enjoy this video if you
